Nepal Cultural Heritage Documentation Project

The focus of this project is to document monuments and heritage objects in the Kathmandu Valley, and publish them online in a searchable, free database.

The Nepal Heritage Documentation Project (NHDP) documents endangered monuments and sites of Nepal’s cultural heritage. The project is particularly valuable in this time of urban transformation, and the damage caused by the earthquake of April 2015.
